Welcome to Ward 10

Our ward includes the vibrant and diverse neighborhoods of East Harriet, East Calhoun, Lowry Hill East, CARAG and Whittier. Ward 10 neighborhoods are an eclectic mix of renters, who make up 70% of the Ward's population, and homeowners.

People are drawn to the area's mix of housing choices and our high quality of life. Ward 10 is home to beautiful lakes and trails, well-loved neighborhood parks, thriving local businesses, a vibrant arts scene, and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. In addition to new apartment developments, a growing number of office spaces, including the CoCo co-working space, are adding job destinations to Ward 10.

Council Member Lisa Bender was elected to serve Ward 10 on November 5, 2013. Her first term priorities are:


Our Work Ahead

I am focused on continuing all of the work we've accomplished so far together, no matter what barriers and challenges arise. We stand 100% ready to fight for civil liberties and freedoms that our country was founded upon and to continue to dismantle and correct our nation's history of racial injustice. We will continue, in the 10th ward office, to bring great care to problems large and small, from flooded alleys and potholes, to community safety, affordable housing, safe streets for all, and worker protections.

My staff and I are happy and honored to work with you and to serve you. All of our work is guided by you: the values, feedback and involvement of the residents of Ward 10. Please keep your emails and calls coming; your ideas inspire us and direct our work. We are always here to help with any question or challenge that we can help solve. It is such an honor to serve and work with you. We have a wonderful community and I am happy to continue working with all of you to make sure it stays that way, that it is affordable and inclusive for all, and that it continues to get better into the future.

Here are just a few of the things we've already accomplished and what we'll keep working on through 2017:

Expanding Housing Options and Improving Development Quality:

Improving Streets for Walking, Biking, and Transit and Increasing Transportation Choice:

Advancing Racial and Economic Justice:

Protecting our Health and the Environment:
